In your more cynical moments you might think that the already overcrowded world of experimental DIY electro needs another knob twiddling home studio dweller like it needs a collection of badly warped vinyl but consider the case of Simon Smerdon AKA Mothboy, a geezer of no little wit and invention. For starters, he's no fresh faced upstart, having been around long enough to amass a not inconsiderable discography and, what's more, anybody who claims he's fairly popular in "awkward chin stroking circles" has to be commended for their healthy sense of perspective. Then again, Mothboy - AKA Aphid Tracks, Glassjawa, Esayes, Jack West and Team Cyphen - is no straightforward electro head, a point that's underlined by the fact that he includes such unchilled, unelectro, un-trip-hop gems as PiL's 'Second Edition' and Napalm Death's 'From Enslavement To Obliteration' alongside more predictable fare like A Tribe Called Quest's 'Low End Theory' and the Beastie Boys' 'Check Your Head' on his list of favourite albums. But then the head scratching eclecticism of Mothboy's taste in listening only reflects the diverse output of this self styled meddler in "alternative dark electro beats".

Originally from way out west i.e. sleepy Devon Mothboy's musical apprenticeship took the form of stints playing bass in a string of thrash metal, punk and hardcore bands before relocating to London and starting out on the next sharply contrasting chapter in his ongoing musical journey which saw him joining forces with 'dark hoppers' Ocosi. Intruigingly, it's a career path not unlike the one that transformed one time Napalm Death drummer Mick Harris from extreme noise terrorist to Mick Harris the trip hop, electro whizz of Scorn fame.
